Victoria Honeyman writes about Trump and Brexit in The Conversation
Dr Victoria Honeyman has written an article entitled ‘Trump and Brexit: are these really revolutions on the right?’ for The Conversation.
Her article addresses the outcome of the US presidential election and the UK referendum; two huge political events which have occurred just months apart. Victoria comments that “The rise of the right across Europe and the US is due to globalisation, the dominance of a liberal elite, the marginalisation of the white working class, even political correctness gone too far”.
She argues that the outcome of both the UK referendum and the US election demonstrate the divides which exist within each nation, “with different geographical areas having different priorities and needs.”
In her article, Victoria warns that these votes cannot been dismissed as dissatisfaction, and if Trump and the Brexiteers ignore the needs of their supporters, this support will soon diminish.
